Internet access on root bot not on user
I can trigger an adsl connection form root console but uder user programs
still don't see any connection. I suppose the problem is trivial, where can I set
something so that my 'user' can have access to the internet...

Still working from root ;>

Use 'sudo'. Wrap up what you do to connect in a shell script, and have your user use sudo to call it: 'sudo [theshellscript]'. You will need to edit the /etc/sudoers file with the visudo command ('visudo' by itself) for it to work.

What do you do to "trigger" the connection? If you can do it from a root console, does using a root console from within a user session work?

To trigger a connection I need to type form root or root console 'adsl-setup'.
When from user I run a console, then su - and get root and from root 'adsl-setup'
it connects, but programs form user such as Kadu (communicator popular in my
country) still doesn't see internet connection.
I will try to use visudo...
